In London, during medieval times, there was a large stone with a heavy sword imbedded in it. The man who could pull the sword from the stone would become King of England, but no man, despite his strength, was able to complete the deed. Will a young lad named Wart, guided by a sagacious but wacky sorcerer named Merlin, be able to pull off the impossible and become King of England? (Hint: Wart's true name is Arthur!).
